Abstracts of 80 Ebony Wills dating from 1468 to 1557 now online

Posted on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2016 and is filed under KAS News.

It is amazing that such a small place as Ebony has produced such a lot of Wills in a relatively short space of time. There are a lot of surnames, field names, place names in them, and also, when you read through them, quite a few occupations – fisherman, smith, haberdasher, etc. plus most of them left money to the church, including John Raynold, who left money to build a new church there in about 1520.
